Episode 4: First Dates

Summary

Dental nurse Jade, who's 25, is set up on a date with handsome tree surgeon Tom. Meanwhile, Sharran - the UK's only female sumo wrestler - meets David, a former bingo-caller, who has been unlucky in love in the past, and City trader Adam is set up on a date with 28-year-old party girl Leena from Liverpool

Review

Only on the ever-surprising First Dates would we get Sharran, the UK’s only female sumo wrestler, who’s been in Guinness World Records as the heaviest sportswoman. The 52-year-old oozes confidence but has experienced men being put off by her size. She and her date, 41-year-old train manager David, have an illuminating chat about weight.

Another inspiring dater is 74-year-old Connie, who wants to experience as much of the world as possible. She meets Gray, who is far less keen on bucket lists. Connie wants to spend a thrilling holiday on the Orient Express, but Gray says he’s been on a train before and, well, that’s quite enough for him.
